“ Past times / Brooch. „
When it comes to brooches they're not something that I tend to go out of my way to buy however I'm into collecting all things ladybird so when I saw this cute item I was like a lamb to the slaughter and treated myself to it quick!
Past Times is a favourite shop of mine for unique and good quality items and I certainly hadn't seen anything like this before!
The stores and the online store have had a 25% of everything sale going on for a while now which actually ends tonight (Monday 22nd November) and this sale has meant that this brooch has been selling at £7.50 a time instead of £10.00 (please note though this is sold out online at the moment though).
The Brooch Itself:
This measures (cm) 1.5h x 2.5w and is made from tough enamel. You get two ladybirds sitting side by side and one has a gold and black body with a red face, 6 bright red, round crystal spots and two green crystal eyes and 5 little gold legs. The ladybird next to it is has a bright red body with a touch of gold and 6 clear, sparkling crystals, a black head with again 2 dark green crystal eyes and 5 visible legs. The whole lot is incredibly well crafted, shiny and the crystals are sparkly and well set in and whats more is that they are smoothly set so they don't catch on clothes at all.
This has a gold safety clasp the underside of it that goes across both ladybirds and that is simply a long thin part that you attach to where you want it and it tucks under a clasp and you twist that round to ensure it doesn't fall off and that is really, really secure.
This is a lightweight piece but ever so pretty. Wipe over to keep it clean it and thats it, thats the ladybird brooch from Past Times!
Pretty, good quality and very unique if your interested run to the shop today and grab one before they cost £2.50 more tomorrow!
Only available in Past Times.
